As a Hull-based company, the history of this great city and surrounding area is something we take a keen interest in and that has allowed us to complete a number of heritage-based projects.
As a Hull-based company, the heritage of this great city and the surrounding area is something we’ve always taken a keen interest in. Indeed, our own depot is a Grade 2 listed building which we have owned and preserved for over 15 years. Sculcoates Goods Station (the only remaining one of its kind in the area) was built in 1864 and we work closely with the conservation department at Hull City Council to ensure that the building is maintained correctly. Rebuilding the chimney stack and external wall are just two of the jobs we’ve carried out as part of that preservation.
Owning and maintaining our own piece of history means that we understand and appreciate how important heritage really is. This has allowed us to complete a number of heritage projects in the past few years.
One of those was in the city’s East Park where we completed a scheme that comprised of landscaping a sensory garden with lake boardwalk, making enhancements to a play area, water feature pools landscape enhancement and a pavilion upgrade. This project required engagement with heritage stakeholders and specialist subcontractors to protect the historic features, boating lake and bridge assets.
